Additional Information

The RCQPS Awards support high quality research projects where knowledge users and academic researchers collaborate to focus on QPS research questions that are determined by the documented needs of the Irish health care system.

RCQPS has for the first time introduced themes of national priority in the area of QPS under which applicants should focus their proposed research questions. Questions are invited under two themes:

  1. Effective Quality Improvement
  2. Building and Supporting a Culture of Quality Improvement

This scheme supports research projects of up to 24 months’ duration where the findings from the research will have a direct impact on the decision making of the knowledge user’s organisation/s. The research question should fit with the QPS theme identified and be relevant to national health priorities. Applications that use methodologies considered novel for the area of QPS are particularly welcome.

Applications should be made on behalf of a team which is made up of researchers and knowledge users. The applicant team should designate a Lead Applicant from the research team and the knowledge user team.
